With USDA, the normal minium creidt score is going to be 640+. A score of 620-639 might be possible, but probably not anything below that.

FHA loans will require a 580+ FICO.

You need to get your credit in order to get a USDA mortgage. Go to your local non profit housing group. They should have a credit counselor that will advise you what you need to do to get your credit score higher beside paying off your collection accounts.

You can find an approved lender by searching http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/Home.html . You will have to pay off your collections and the price you are approved for will be based off of your income and debts!
